What To Eat Every Night This Week

Hello Lovely,

We’re officially in the Back to School season. School has been in session for one week and the adjustment can be rough. Early morning wake up calls, congested morning commutes, afternoon pickups and the dreaded dinnertime. It’s easy to want to skip this part and settle for a pizza or bowl of cereal, but there are so many easy weeknight meals you can try that’ll satisfy the whole family. These recipes are minimal effort with maximum effect!

Lemon Pesto Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Cauliflower Rice

This recipe was a complete mistake, but requires so little work, dinner will appear to be done in an instant By using store-bought cauliflower rice you save a lot of time because all you have to do is pop it in the microwave once everything is done. The sweet potatoes are easy to cut into cubes and roast in the oven. You can put the chicken breasts in the marinade in the morning and drop it in the slow cooker as soon as you get home. After only 1-1.5 hours in the slow cooker, you’ll have a complete meal that you didn’t need to supervise.
